This casual restaurant offers a wide variety of food. Because the tables are close together, it can become quite noisy. We enjoyed wine with our entrees of chicken, fish, and pasta. The salads and soups were tasty. The service was professional and friendly.

Soleil is unique in its quebecqois menu. The food is excellent, service attentive and in nice weather you can sit outside (and pretend you're in Paris)

Enjoyed a quiet lunch with a longtime friend at Soleil Westwood, a few blocks south of Wilshire, away from the hustle and bustle of UCLA. Plenty of delicious options on the menu -- competent, friendly service. In all, a great oasis. I will return.

Soleil Westwood, a fixture of the neighborhood for over 10 years, sits proudly on the corner of Westwood Boulevard and Wilkins Avenue. Although it’s known primarily for its French cuisine, its roots are from Quebec.

Arriving in Los Angeles over 22 years ago, he fell in love with the city. Having long worked as a waiter and manager at various places in the city, he decided to open his own restaurant, Soleil Westwood.Whether stopping in for a quick lunch during the week, enjoying a relaxing leisurely brunch on the weekend, or spending time over dinner with family or friends, Soleil offers something for everyones’ taste. Choose from a various array of dishes featured on the menu as well as the Chef’s daily specials. Plus, the wine menu and beers of the world selection will aim to please. We look forward to seeing you soon at Soleil Westwood.
